Hearts (11) v Motherwell (2)
New interim Hearts boss Gary Locke has Ryan Stevenson back in his squad following a three-match suspension. His only concern is over the fitness of Michael Ngoo, but the on-loan Liverpool striker is expected to be fit. Scott Robinson (knee), Danny Grainger (knee), Marius Zaliukas (ankle) and Callum Patterson (foot) remain on the sidelines, while Jamie Hamill is still working his way back from knee surgery.
Tom Hateley and Fraser Kerr will both return to the Motherwell squad. A thigh problem ruled right-back Hateley out of Wednesday's Clydesdale Bank Premier League win over Celtic, while Kerr has also recovered from illness. Boss Stuart McCall was keeping his cards close to his chest as he said an unnamed defender was in danger of missing the trip to Edinburgh.
Last season: Hearts 0 Motherwell 1; Motherwell 3 Hearts 0; Hearts 2 Motherwell 0; Motherwell 1 Hearts 0.

Top scorers (all competitions): John Sutton (Hearts) 5; Michael Higdon (Motherwell) 19.

Ross County (4) v Inverness (3)
Ross County boss Derek Adams has a full squad. Winger Ivan Sproule was angry at being substituted at Aberdeen but Adams revealed he had taken him off as a precaution following his recent hamstring problem. Gary Glen will start on the bench again despite scoring the winner at Pittodrie.
Inverness manager Terry Butcher has healthy selection dilemmas. Gary Warren returns after suspension but Danny Devine has performed well deputising in central defence for two games. Captain Richie Foran is also pushing for a start after making his comeback from a knee injury in the 80th minute against Dundee United.
Last season: No corresponding fixture.
